    Yeah, you have a good point [he said, furtively securing any sharp objects in view and eyeing possible exits].

    Wouldn't our unemployment go down because of this? Or did the baby boomer retire and took their job with them?

    Of course it does. It's one of the contributing factors in the unemployment rate dropping.

    Wonder what liberals think the over 1 million discouraged workers that weren't counted last month did to the unemployment rate? Unemployment rate drops as more and more people drop out of the labor force. If Obama keeps this up it will be down to 7% and liberals will want Sainthood for Obama

    Are you referring to the seasonal adjustment that they make EVERY year?
